Secret Of The Week

Long time ago, when I was just a 14 year old boy, I watched an animated movie - An American Tail - that tells a story a family of mice that migrated to America in search for the proverbial new life in a new world.

Anyways, the theme song of the movie was "Somewhere Out There" and besides being the choice of teenagers in love then, the song also went on to win 2 Grammy's, including the coveted 'Song of the Year."

This week's Secret of the Week was chosen because it reminded of that time in my life; how the song meant to me then and how it still means to me now.

And to be more specific, the part of the song that came to my mind when I saw the above from Post Secret was the following lines:

And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star
And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

So yeah, I do that sometimes.

Actually, I do that a lot. Like a lot, a lot.

When I'm alone and I miss certain people, I kinda look at the sky at night and when I think that maybe, the person I miss is also looking at the same sky, it kinda helps, y'know?

Sometimes, with My Small Baby, it doesn't work though. When she's on the other side of the world, because of the time difference, when I look up at the sky at night, she's probably shopping somewhere.

I know it sounds weird but hey, the song was written and hence, I'm sure it does happen.

Moving on, the second secret just hit me right on the head! It's a thought that have been lingering in my head for quite sometime now.

How do you thank someone who helped you become a better person when you and them are both dead to each other?

In a previous 'Secret of the Week' entry I wrote:

"And there is that one person that even if the chances of reconnecting is downright impossible, that no matter how hurt we are, that despite everyone around us is telling us that we're better off without that person, that reconnecting would only bring back the hurtful memories, but deep in our hearts, we truly believe that despite whatever happened, we need to know that we're ok with that person to truly move on."

The secret above, coupled with the thoughts I have had, just sums up the whole thing.

C'est la vie.
